Jimmie Johnson won for the third time in his last four Sprint Cup Series starts on Sunday. The latest victory came in the Quicken Loans 400. The victory was “Six Pack’s” first at the 2-mile Michigan International Speedway oval.
The “freaky fast” Kevin Harvick was closing on Johnson, however, Harvick did not have enough laps left ot catch Johnson.
Movers and Shakers
Even though “Jeremy The Coach” did not score the most points this week, his choice of Kyle Larson was enough for him to remain at the top of the totem pole, by a very slim 2 points!
The two biggest scorers were a pair of players who prospered greatly from that freaky fast dude. Both “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit” and “Doug The Former Mudslinger, Pyschic, now turned Kettle Corn Dude” each grabbed 44 points courtesy of Kevin Harvick.
As previously mentioned, “Jeremy The Coach” did not score the most points this weekend, however, he did grab 37 points from the potential 2015 Rookie of The Year, Kyle Larson’s 8th place finish!
The third highest results for Michigan belongs to Marc, acquiring a nice 37 points from Joey Logano’s 9th place finish.
Next in line on the scoring pylon are Carole, and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey”. Each logged a cool 34 points, “The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey’s” points came from Clint Bpwyer’s 10th place finish. Meanwhile, Carole’s 34 points came from Tony Stewart’s 11th place finish.
Rounding out the top five scorers for the week are both Doug, Jr., as well as “Karen The highly Opinionated Southern Belle” who scored 32 points while rooting ol Kurt Busch on today.
This week we saw historic movements within the standings. Two players set a record for the single largest one week change of position in the history of The Redneck Fantasy League! Both Dawn, who finished in second place in the first segment, and Brandon, one of the new fresh pieces of meat, dropped in the standings like a May prom dress! Both of them fell thirteen places (13) this week, Dawn landed in 15th place, and Brandon to 16th place!
The next player who had a large change of position was “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, who rocketed six (6) spots in the standings! “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Pyschic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude”, as well as Carole shot up five (5) places this week.
Doug, Jr.and “Dan The Numbers Dude” each shimmied up the totem pole four (4) spots after Michigan.
Lastly, “A&M Aggie Sue” climbed up three (3) places this week.
Those not mentioned either remained status quo, or slid up or down one or two places.
Straight From The Crapper
This week we have two players who showed their prowess in selecting a winner! Both Dawn and Brandon were rewarded with a whopping three (3), that is correct 3 points! For that expertise, these two individuals are the co-winners of, and share the honor of, “the crappiest picks of the week”!
There is no change in the person in control of “The Outhouse” this week. Even though “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” grabbed a mediocre 24 points, it was not enough to yank him off of “the throne” this week! No, “Jason The Tie Dye Dude” still hold a cool 20 point cushion on the crapper! His closest rival is Zee.
Next week NASCAR makes it’s second trip to “The Golden State”, Sonoma, California, where the first of the two scheduled road races will take place. So as John Phillips of “the Mamas and the Papas” wrote, and Scott MacKenzie sang, “If your going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair”!
